Hi,

I set up dietpi on a 8gb sd card, but i just bought a 32gb sd card. Is there an easy way to transfer os from current sd to the new one ?

Thanks in advance,

Cheers.

Hi,

there are quite a lot of guides on the web on how to clone a SD card. Maybe this will help you

or this tool

I've seen these tools but do you know if the "size upgrade" may cause any problems (indexing, etc..) ?
